Not too long ago when I started teaching in primary school as part of my fellowship program, I was as apprehensive and intimidated as I possibly could be. Intimidated mostly because I lacked prior experience of teaching, and apprehensive about whether or not the students would easily accept me as their new teacher. The first few days evoked in me a myriad emotions such as fear, anxiety, nervousness, disappointment, and there were also moments of happiness when we would break the barrier and engage in meaningful conversations.
It was a school holiday. Meena, Raju and their friend Sumi had finished all their chores, but it was too hot to play. Their one storybook had been read over and over again.
 

UNICEF developed the Meena Communication Initiative (MCI) as a mass communication project aimed at changing perceptions and behaviour that hamper the survival, protection and development of girls in South Asia.

This series of videos is produced by TESS-India to support teachers in developing learner-centred classroom practices. Filmed in primary and secondary schools in India, the aim of the videos is to inspire teachers to experiment with using similar approaches in their own classrooms.
